Harrison Ford is wrongly convicted for the murder of his wife, but somehow survives a spectacular train crash on the way to prison. On the run, he is determined to find the real killer. He is relentlessly pursued by Deputy U.S. Marshal Tommy Lee Jones, who tries to anticipate Ford's next move. Beginning with Ford's implausible escape, his freedom relies on increasingly ridiculous last-second escapes, coincidences or other gimmicks. As a result, the film has no credibility, but manages to work as popcorn entertainment. The soundtrack by James Newton Howard is just as overbearing as the plot.
